, the des moines register has not in decades endorsed a republican. they have said that governor romney, and they make interesting points about it's the economy that's most important to people, and even though both president obama and governor romney are harvard law graduates and good family men, when it comes to running a business and getting people back to work, which at least 23 million people are concerned about, governor romney is the man for the job and the des moines register is endorsing governor romney. >> huge in iowa, potentially. obviously completely stuck in the polls, the president seems to have had more people coming out in early voting but the statewide polling in iowa shows romney gaining. six electoral votes, it could come down to a margin of victory in the single digits. this one matters. it's also the case that the des moines register has gotten this endorsement correct in five of the -- all five of the last races. they endorsed al gore in 2000 and he got most of the popular vote. 80s pretty good bellwether. >> we're going to take a look at that in the next hour. the
. there were romney supporters, obama supporters. the number-one issue was the economy with a special focus on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived
better, economy getting better. romney camp has got to figure out a way to blunt that somehow. >> i think paul ryan and mitt romney have done a very good job talking about what a real recovery looks like. what a recovery in the early 1980s began to look like when you are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. not 150,000 jobs. or 100,000 jobs. i think people know what a recovery feels like around their own kitchen tables. that's why that ad that ran with the family just sitting in silence at dinner was so powerful during this election cycle because it was the anxiety that so many people feel, bill, regardless of politics. they know how their own family feels. >> bill: that's why governor romney is running strong in so many places. it's all about the economy. you don't disagree with me that libya is going to matter? no matter what comes out? >> well, i think it its actually played out already as far as the way the people think. i don't think we will learn anything else. the drip, drip, drip has been pretty interesting in the last few days. again, the press totally falling down. >> i think
the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this week went to defiance, ohio, an told a group of 11,000 people, jeep is about to move all of their production overseas. i read that somewhere. not at all true. it's okay for a candidate it make a flub. but to not correct it, to not say i was wrong about that, the candidate went back, the campaign was asked, are you sure the candidate actually meant that? because that doesn't seem to be true. no response clearing that up from the campaign. there's been a truthfulness problem with the romney campaign that connects even to the very basic issues like the economy in the states where it most matters. >> and carly fiorina, from the other side you have governor romney not focusing on trust, saying look at the record. do you want another four years like what we've had? this is how he's teeing it up down the stretch. >> this is not the time to double down on the trickle-down policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring american families the certainty that the
that jumps out is people started judging romney the winner on the economy. he's opened now a high lead over obama on the economy. if that overrides their concerns about his personality and character. then there's not much obama can do. but they had had luck with romney's personal negatives before that. so there's potential there. >> i wonder -- i was thinking about this with the appearances in ohio. looking at the economic numbers in ohio. it's been funny at the personality level to see john kasich talk about how much better things have gotten under his leadership. we'd really to prefer you say things are going badly. as the campaign shrinks down to a small number of swing states and they have that improving economic numbers problem as it were on the republican side in florida and ohio, does that change the type of argument they need to make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted to do things differently than barack obama? >> they are hitting it there. basically things are on the upswing in ohio. and to keep it going, you need to change leadership in washington
and get jobs again and get this economy growing. >> reporter: mitt romney's solution would be to ease government regulations to encourage lenders to offer refinancing to more homeowners. >> foreclosures are the lowest in five years. >> reporter: president obama wants to expand refinancing programs for borrowers. he wanthe wants to include morts owned by banks. obama also wants lenders to offer unemployed homeowners a one one-year grace period from foreclosure. >> i'm feeling very abandoned. >> reporter: juneau isn't sure either plan can help him in time. he hopes the bank will agree to sell his house for $200,000 less than he owes. >> all the taxes i've paid in the past and all the things i did for my country in the service is wasted. my life feels like it's a waste. >> reporter: with a failed business and a foreclosure on his credit report, juneau won't be able to even consider buying another home for at least three years. manuel bojorquez, cbs news, ft. lauderdale, florida. >> brennan: coming up, a reporter's notebook on afghan farmers' dependence on illicit crops. >> brennan: plant
. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have ajob and are underemployed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it --ejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase aready slowing the ecomy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declar
's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies, fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit, make -- create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty, that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed, and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact, it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is because of republican policies and all of the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? >> you said it. not me. >> it's funny. it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel? we see more economic optimism in the country and, yet, people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster, and you look at the recovery, still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> yeah, and you
and romney is the businessman to get the economy going but he said that he's going to reverse frank d.o.d. and i think he was -- dodd-frank and he said that he was going to maintain and that was tendering to the independents. the best i can tell he and ryan's policy simulate britain's which is in a full blown recession. so non-can tell what romney is saying or speaking. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street and i think he is saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. host: go ahead. guest: i think mitt romney has been pretty straightforward on where he is going to be focusing his presidency in terms of the five-point plan to get america going again and rebuild and bring 23 million jobs. regarding dodd-frank there were good ideas in there but it needs to be reworked. the whole concept of going in and legitimizing the too big to fail bank should concern all americans. so there is definitely some changes that need to be made in that piece of legislation. host: next up is kenneth from north carolina on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i appreciat
that connects the economy in the states that matter. >> carly, you have governor romney not focusing on trust. do you want another four years like we have had. >> this is not the time to double down and trickle down on policies that failed us. it's time for bold changes that measure up to the moment and bring america's families up that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point focusing on ohio. 7% unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in battleground states? >> that important state has a republican governor that's done the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack.
report proof the economy is improving. mitt romney calls it a sad reminder the economy is at a virtual standstill. >>> big news out of the district about the speed camera fines. what anyone who drives in d.c. will want to hear, trust me. good morning and welcome to news 4 midday. i'm keith russell. >> i'm barbara harrison. it's friday, november 2nd, 2012. we begin with two developing stories. police shot and killed two suspects one in d.c. and the other in stafford. we begin with a man stabbed an officer. megan mcgrath is live on the scene from the latest from washington's brookland section. >> reporter: when police repond to 911 calls they are not sure what they are going encounter, what is going to be happening on the scene when they arrive. that was certainly the case this morning. a veteran police officer and his partner were in harm's way responding to a domestic assault call here. the officers were attacked by the suspect. one fired in self-defense. police chief kathy lanier hugged one of her officers on the scene. investigators pick up a hoels ere and place t in the trunk of an
in ohio is the economy. mitt romney flat out opposed the rescue, although he's tried to reinvent that time and time again. it's not surprising he would lie about car manufacturing jobs going to china. if he admits the the truth, he'll be finished in that state. so he's out there creating a story, telling people that a plant is going to be shut down by chrysler and the jobs are going overseas. nothing could be further from the truth. this is just falling right into the hands of the obama campaign. you can't make this stuff up. but you see if he were to talk about the 1100 jobs that chrysler added in detroit, then of course, that would be complimenting the president on job creation and saving the automobile industry. it's a tight spot for romney and his surrogates. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, is lying the only way mitt romney can win ohio? text a for yes, b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog online. we'll bring you results later on in the program. i'm joined by a couple sources who know all about automobile rescue. that is former governor ted strickland of ohio. and a

enough. okay. >> what exactly makeyou think that romney is going to provide3 this booming economy is you talk about? >> well, for one thing, he did in massachusetts. he attended with companies over and over again. he is exactly what the nation needsnow. because, as you said, the government does not create jobs. we have trickle-down government. we need government to get out of the wake just to repeal obamacare, if nothing else happened. if romney diddnot do what i expected to do with theeconomy, simply to repeal obamacare is going to a -- >> yes. a cia operative told "washington post" editor philip gramm that journalists can be bought and paid for for ss than the price of a call girl. mitch and $300 a month. you think fox news journalists or journalists in general are guilty of taking money from the government to push propaganda? do you think fox news is guilty of taking money from the government? >> how did he come up with a call girl price? that's what i want to know. >> that they keep -- john: i'll answer that. i understand people believe that. but i was a consumer reporter. businesses
, republicans have clearly emphasized mitt romney has emphasized the economy. one thing, i want to ask about this it's not been brought up much, the obama campaign has made strategic decision not t try to blame the economy on bush even though let's face it, most of the damage occurred just as he was leaving office. >> he had to come up with a new message. >> point is the economy tanked in late '07 or -- mid '08. obama president campaign not been trying to say this is bush's fault. but a lot of people recognize that there was clearly republican involvement there. i'm just wondering if women voters are more likely to say to themselves, i'mor the economy but i don't trust the republican guy because the economy tanked when a republican was in office. >> for one thing, look, i think republicans and democrats are both to blame for where our country is today. it wasn't one party that set up the $16 trillion debt. i think president obama put the pedal to the metal but both parties for blame. i think that's where we are as a country, we have two different choices. what mitt romney is talking about is
higher than forecasted. mitt romney has won the economy, not by a huge margin. generally, that's a good thing for a challenger. he's won the issue of bipartisan. i think president obama's trying to close some of that ground. but people will say that the ability to capture the center is important to them. they seem to be tilting a little bit in mitt romney's favor. those are good fundamentals. they don't make up, in my mind, as best we can tell for the very formidable electoral college math that is working much more in president obama's favor. gwen: what do you think about that, jackie? >> i agree. we could be looking at, we're all sort of talking and gaming an electoral college victory for the president who loses the popular vote. does anybody really think that's going to happen? >> i do, yes. >> or are you wishing that to happen? >> well, we are journalists. it's certainly possible. and i think boarding towards probably. >> the hurricane damage won't affect the electoral vote but it will take some electorals from barack obama. >> it could drive up the popular vote. >> i would say a pop
direction. if we keep talking about the economy we're going to lose. >> that's the first mitt romney anti-obama ad said this year. quoting the president as saying if we keep talking about the economy we're going to lose. here's what president obama actually said. >> senator's mccame's campaign actually said and i quote, if we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose. >> he was quoting somebody else, to criticize the quote. the romney campaign intentionally took president obama totally out of context. totally out of context so that was a complete lie and the response when they got called out on it was not to cut a new version or pull it down their response was to say they meant to do that and mr. romney personally defended that ad and it's still on their website. with seven days before the election not be a surprise that the closing argument is an ad that even the usually-unoffendable beltway press is calling a flat-out lie. it's not clear at this point how much campaigning is left before election day given the storm bettering the east coast right now. both candidates have offic
think the economy is not doing well and i think romney is the guy that can turn it around, gets back on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing them with a better future. and this has been a very stable race in ohio. largely because of the senat

/"washington post" poll, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. who's offering a clear plan. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. we know that president obama is focusing on that now. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating mitt romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. the president laid them out at the convention. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers in place all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country, rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. using that savings to do nation-building here at home. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sh
